Thunder-Mites go two by two

Sooke Thunder-Mites 1 (9 and 10) co-eds faced off against Langford in the two-by-two co-ed weekend.

Sooke Thunder-Mites 1 (9 and 10) co-eds faced off against Langford in the two-by-two co-ed weekend. Mites are players born in 2003 and 2004, and scores are not kept in games before the long weekend. Players rotate positions, and, according to their website, “The program is geared to what the kids can do and enjoy at a given age.” Here, Risto Ringma #6, pitches the ball. “The kids ages 8-10 are still learning the fundamentals of the game and we are trying to give them the most positive experience, sportsmanship and fun so they can come back year after year,” says Vickie Stehle, mother of Katrina Stehle, here playing catcher in jersey #5.
